Summary ESMF-OBA in Municipal Waste Management in Nepal   (Date:2012-10-02)

The project ‘Output-Based Aid (OBA) for Municipal Solid Waste Management in Nepal’ aims to improve the quality and financial sustainability of SWM services in participating municipalities, through an output-based subsidy scheme.  Given the generally poor financial situation of the SWM sector, the project is designed to provide incentives to enable the gradual development of a beneficiary charging mechanism for SWM services in order to enhance financial sustainability, improve service quality, and enable expansion of SWM service coverage over a four year period.
